      The fields specified in the WHERE clause of the SQL statement

    • B.

      The availability of indexes for the queried tables.

    • C.

      How often an SQL statement is executed

    • D.

      The number of database records that will be retrieved

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. The fields specified in the WHERE clause of the SQL statement
    B. The availability of indexes for the queried tables.
    Explanation
    The data access strategy used for an SQL statement depends on the fields specified in the WHERE clause of the statement and the availability of indexes for the queried tables. The WHERE clause determines which records need to be retrieved, and the indexes help in optimizing the retrieval process by providing a quick lookup mechanism. Therefore, these two factors play a crucial role in determining the data access strategy for an SQL statement.

      By creating a hardware bottleneck on the database server, causing poor database performance for all processes that use the database

    • D.

      By displacing many blocks from the SAP buffers (Program, CUA or screen) that must be refilled by other processes

    • E.

      By causing missing optimizer statistics that cause other processes choose incorrect access paths for SQL

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. By displacing many blocks from the database buffer that must be replaced by other processes
    B. By causing other processes to wait for the database and / or work processes which are busy
    C. By creating a hardware bottleneck on the database server, causing poor database performance for all processes that use the database
    Explanation
    Expensive SQL statements can cause poor performance because they can displace many blocks from the database buffer, which then need to be replaced by other processes. This can lead to delays and increased wait time for other processes that are trying to access the database. Additionally, these statements can create a hardware bottleneck on the database server, resulting in poor performance for all processes that rely on the database.

    What percentage is considered a potential resource bottleneck for the CPU?

    • A.

      Below 20% Idle

    • B.

      Below 10% Idle

    • C.

      Above 80% Idle

    • D.

      Above 90% Idle

    Correct Answer
    A. Below 20% Idle
    Explanation
    A percentage below 20% idle is considered a potential resource bottleneck for the CPU. This means that if the CPU is consistently utilizing more than 80% of its resources, it may struggle to handle additional tasks efficiently. This can result in slower performance, lag, and potential system crashes. Therefore, it is important to monitor CPU usage and ensure it remains below 20% idle to maintain optimal performance.
